Come, the Dark by Rebecca Hamilton
(Forever Girl #2)
Publication date: January 6th 2015
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult
TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse.
Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
I thought Come, the Dark was a fantastic book!! As soon as I started to read it, I could not put it down. I am very happy I got a chance to explore this series being this was the first book I read in it and the first book I read by Rebecca Hamilton.
I am not too sure where I want to begin talking about this book, since I don’t want to give anything away. I guess I will beginning with speaking about the plot. I thought that it was such an original idea and something that I haven’t read before and Ms. Hamilton did it in such a beautiful way. I also loved Rose, she was such a strong heroine and over came such obstacles and growing even more from each thing she face.
I am beyond happy that I was able to get a chance to read this book and I know I will be looking out for more by Ms. Hamilton.
